I’m pretty big into buying fun, tax-deductible items for my business, but my girlfriend thinks I’m a bit overboard!
I recently purchased the GlassRenu System and think it’d be great to store pictures and do a show for potential clients and have them see the possibilities for their own windows.
I know a good “story” is 100% of landing the job, I think pictures will help the pitch.
This is where the iPad comes in.
How else would/do you use one for your business? I currently use my Iphone onsite to do invoices and estimates. What would the iPad bring to the table? Signing waivers and agreements? I’d be into that…anything else?
That’s a great point Micah, you get their interest they WAY you show them and not WHAT you show them.
I just got a Glassrenu system too, and this is can be the perfect excuse to buy an iPad, but I’d have to pick up wifi on the road because I won’t be signing any contracts
yeah…I have an 11" MacBook Air and I love it - much better than an Asus EEE…eek. And I could do all that on the MBA if I just wanted it to sit up while I do the presentation. But iPad puts it in their hands! (BTW I downloaded IE8 to the ASUS today and it deleted all other browsers AND my internet connection settings! WTF?!..while the MBA just hummed along )
But, I’m seriously starting to convince myself to buy the iPad for signing waivers, then emailing them to the clients!..I don’t have them signed enough - too much paperwork and organizing :(…what a terrible reason. Haven’t been sued yet!
Yeah I have found that the best use for a PC these days is to just serve as another great reminder of why we bought Macs. Not that we need to be reminded… its just that I can’t really think of anything else a PC is good for, so I had to really scrape the bottom of the “what-are-PCs-good-for” barrel.
Maybe Steve could tell us some more things that PCs are good for- lol;)
People love the ipad I have presentations on it for all of our services. Hand the customer the ipad while we measure and look things over. Than enter the info into a spreadsheet to calculate the price go to calendar and schedule the job.
